Eminem Gears up for ‘Revival’ Release
After a four-year hiatus since The Marshall Mathers LP 2 was released, Eminem is ready for another revival. His upcoming album is titled just that, Revival, and is hitting electronic shelves on December 15. He’s already revealed two tracks off the new record: “Walk on Water” (which features the vocal stylings of Beyonce) and “Untouchable.” Also appearing on the album is Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys and P!nk.
Besides “what will the new album sound like?” the next biggest question on fans’ minds is whether Em will tour behind the new material. Although he’s distanced himself from the super long and epic tours that some major artists are known for, chances are that he’ll at least announce a handful of concerts in major cities at large arenas. On 2014’s The Monster Tour, he and Rihanna performed in Pasadena (CA), East Rutherford (NJ) and Detroit (MI), with two shows at each stop. So for those hoping to catch a glimpse of the rapper live next year, prepare your wallets for a potential destination concert.
Eminem Tickets & Tour Dates 2018
There are currently no Eminem tour dates or concerts scheduled for 2018. But with the release of his new album Revival on December 15, that could all change. Track Eminem on SeatGeek to get notified of any concert announcements.
Eminem Ticket Prices & Historic Trends
Of the four Eminem tours that SeatGeek has tracked, his most recent trek with Rihanna on The Monster Tour drove the most demand from fans at an average resale ticket price of $160. His 2010 The Home & Home Tour with Jay-Z came in at a close second, with tickets costing an average of $146 on the secondary market.
It may come as no surprise that of any city that Eminem has performed in over that time period, fans in Detroit have shown the most demand for tickets. Tickets for shows in Detroit have resold for an average of $167. Following Detroit is New York ($163).
Ticket Price Factors
There are a couple factors that could influence how Eminem ticket demand–and therefore, prices–turns out on the secondary market.
First, many of his recent tours have not hit many cities in the U.S. If Eminem announces a tour that spans a host of U.S. locations, where fans haven’t had the chance to see him perform for years, demand could shoot up.
Second, any partner performer that Eminem tours with could influence ticket demand, like his tours with Rihanna and Jay-Z. Eminem frequently goes out on the road with other major artists, so this isn’t an unlikely scenario.
